The NLP Center of New York

It’s not enough to agree that BLACK LIVES MATTER. We need to educate ourselves, to talk about it, to learn how to listen, to show our support and to take a stand against systemic racism. We need to act together, right now.

We are currently conducting ALL of our courses with ZOOM and will continue to do so until we arrive at a place where we can be confident about the safety of our participants and our community. We are also conducting our one-on-one coaching/psychotherapy sessions ONLINE as well via video-conferencing. 

Also, to address concerns and uncertainty about current and future personal finances, we are offering discounts of up to 30% on many of our popular NLP and Hypnosis courses and offering NO fee cancellations on all of our courses up until the first day of the course.

Having taught, practiced and lived Neuro-Linguistic Programming since we began our NLP studies in the early 1980s, we decided it’s time to present both our version and our vision of NLP.
For us, NLP is about being effective communicators and influencing with integrity. It is about taking responsibility for the impact we have on others as well as our selves. And it is about recognizing how we limit our potential and can discover choices we did not know we had available. NLP has been and continues to be a cutting edge human technology that produces powerful long lasting changes in the people who have studied it or have worked with someone who has. And it is transforming the lives of people all over the world.
